132Transformation is the name of the game with the new Go! backpack jacket from Our GlobO, a local company that’s all about living wisely and conserving the planet’s resources. The jacket’s perfect for active Northwest kiddos who play outside even in the drizzle and mist. Not only is it stylish and cozy , the jacket’s water-and wind-resistant and made from sustainable, recycled materials that can be recycled again when the jacket gets worn and torn. When skies are blue, just fold and tuck – now, Little One has a backpack that’s handy for carrying small treasures and snacks. The jacket is available in crimson red, navy blue, and olive green, each with a contrasting yellow fleece lining; it will soon be available in screaming yellow, husky purple, and lush green, with a choice of a mesh lining. A portion of sales goes to the Sustainable Schools Initiative, working to integrate sustainability into classrooms. Each jacket has an identification number as a way to track it if it’s lost and to follow its life after your family has recycled it; just register online. GlobO is working on a matching adult jacket and sun hats, too. Fun, functional, and Earth-friendly: go GlobO!

Go! backpack jacket, $34.95
